Aporeto is a cloud-native security startup that offers comprehensive security solutions for applications, containers, and microservices.

Aporeto strengthens security and simplifies operations for enterprises with cloud-native and legacy applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments by decoupling security from the infrastructure and the network.

Aporeto was founded in 2015 by Amir Sharif, Dimitri Stiliadis & Satyam Sinha. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California, United States.

The Aporeto platform protects cloud applications from attack by authenticating and authorizing all communications with a cryptographically signed identity assigned to every workload. 

Aporeto alleviates reliance on un-manageable error-prone IP white-list policies.


Aporeto is backed by leading investors including Comcast Ventures, Norwest Venture Partners, Data Collective DCVC, Wing Venture Capital and others.
